After centuries of persecution, the remnant history of this phenomenon has been pursued and intertwined into more mainstream narratives.As a result of the recent developments, LGBT history month began to be observed in the US in 1994. This has seen many other countries pick up the trend. During this month, LGBT rights and other related rights are highlighted.
